He said that even before tart can be made to brin bout negotiations or d sclatiqn, "his seven nation must first agree on a commo land on the various aspects o egotiations and cessation o tostilities."

Heads of state of the Unitec fates, Australia, New Zealand hailand, South Korea am 0uth Viet Nam are expected rrive Oct. 23 for the three-d>,j onference. While Marcos gave no details f the disagreement 'he said the onflict "has been made publi in statements." One known area of disagree- lent has become obvious in le stands taken by the Unitec tales and South Viet Nam on le best passible way to move he Viet Nam war to the onference table. The United States has statei lat it would call a new halt to bombing of North Viet Nam it received prior assurances rom Hanoi of reciprocal de- scalation in the south The Saigon government hue not protesting publiclj gainst the U.S. peace moves naintains that the first peace move should come from the north with a stop to Communisi aggression in South Viet Nam Another possible area ol disagreement is the presence o: the Viet Cong at any Viet Nam conference. Saigon steadfastly refuses to recognize the National Liberation Front, political arm <rf the Vjet Cong. One of the measures to be considered at the Manila talks win be the search for "an honest broker" to act as a go- between to set up peace talks Indonesia already has been approached and Marcos has had two meetings in Bangkok aid in Jakarta with Indonesian Foreign Minister Adam Malik on the possibility.

(UPI) _ Slate Court of Appeals Friday dismissed a suit filed by a white Woman now married to an Indiana Negro for custody of her five children by a previous marraige. Mrs. Anna Eilers Anderson ndianapolis, had sought to gain custody of Ihe children from the Louisville and Jefferson County Children's Home. The ruling said a writ of habeas corpus could not be directed against the children's home because it no longer had custody of the children. Th- youngsters, 6 to 14 years of ige, now are in custody of their ather, George Eilers, 46 in Louisville. Eilers obtained custody hrough a 1964 ruling by Jeferson Circuit Judge Lyndon behmid at Louisville, who said hat "rearing these children in J racially mixed atmosphere Till per se indoctrinate them with a psychology of infer- onty." The Friday ruling by the tale's highest court marked he latest round in Mrs. Anderson's attempt to regain custody irough the courts. She w?s •»iven custody after her 1963 di- orce from Eilers. But in January, 1964, she married Marshall C. Anderson Negro, and Eilers complained o the court that the children hould be taken from her. The children had been living in foster and juvenile homes until last July 6, when Schmid /arded custody to Eilers. Mrs. Anderson's attorneys ontended that the ruling vic- ated her constitutional rights ince it was based purely on ace. Mrs. Anderson had contended er husband was an unfit pa- ait because of arrests on gaming end bookmaking charges. Schmid's ruling said "while le courts in Kentucky frown upon gambling and the statutes i inveigh against it, we cannot in I this day and age reach a conclusion that because a parent is a professional gambler or an amateur gambler that they are j unfit to have the custody of their own children." The Schmid ruling did not mention Anderson's race. Kentucky law prohibits interracial marriage. 18 Injured In Tokyo Buses, Truck Crash TOKYO (UPI) -Eighteen persons _were injured Saturday in a chain collision of two buses loaded with sightseers and a truck on a superhighway on the outskirts of Tokyo.
